This Meetup is being refurbished to welcome Ms. Sheryl McGavin. She will be bringing CST classes and CST study groups to Charlotte. I want to welcome Sheryl and encourage each of you to stay connected for following announcements.
About Sheryl McGavin:
She is a licensed occupational therapist and a certified craniosacral therapist. She received her BS in Occupational Therapy from Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) a little over 30 years ago and have specialized in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) for more than 20 years.
Over the years I have worked in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics and schools. This has provided me with a broad base of experience with a great diversity of conditions. From newborns to geriatrics, from chronic debilitating illness to wellness, I have had the honor and privilege to work with a wide variety of individuals at all places on the continuum of life and health, from the beginning to the end.
She worked with Dr. John Upledger, the developer of the Upledger CST at the Upledger Institute in Florida. (See "About CranioSacral Therapy" to learn more about Dr. Upledger and CST) While at the Institute, she worked as a staff therapist in the intensive programs and the clinic, and I taught beginning through advanced CST classes all over the world.
She is excited to be working with the CST Alliance (CSTA), (www.CSTAllliance.com) to develop classes for therapists who are interested in learning Craniosacral Therapy!
Sheryl has developed a year-long CST program that will focus on supporting local therapists who want to learn CST in a small, local setting, working at a gradual pace. This program will have 1 full day of training a month (on a Saturday), plus the availability of 1 study group evening a month. She hopes to begin the monthly classes by Fall 2012.
She will also be teaching 3 day CSTA's Craniosacral Therapy curriculum here in the Charlotte area beginning sometime in late 2012 or early 2013. These will be 3 day classes and held periodically throughout the year. You can find out more about those classes on the CST Alliance website at www.CSTAllliance.com.
CEU's and contact hours will be available through the CSTA. For those of you who have already had some training in CST from the Upledger Institute she will be able to incorporate you into this new curriculum, taking into consideration your prior training. Information about this is also on the CSTA website. If you have any questions about upcoming educational opportunities please contact at email@example.com. If you would like to be included in an "e-mail" list to receive information about classes, please let her know and she will make sure you are added to her data base.
